Moog has announced the Matriarch, a brand new analog, semi-modular synth that is turning heads as well as ears.

Unveiled on the opening day of Moogfest 2019, the Moog Matriarch is a patchable 4-note paraphonic analog synthesizer with a built-in Sequencer, Arpeggiator, stereo Ladder Filters, and stereo Analog Delay. It's semi-modular, so patching isn't required to explore its rich sonic capabilities, but with 90 modular patch points, there's a vast array of possibilities.

Matriarch features:

  • Mono, duo, and 4-note paraphonic playability
  • Stereo analog delay w/ up to 700ms of MIDI sync-able stereo or ping/pong style repeats
  • 256 step sequencer w/ up to 4 notes per step and 12 stored patterns. Can be decoupled from Matriarch to independently sequence external gear
  • Arpeggiator with selectable modes (Order, Forward/Backward, Random)
  • Semi-modular analog synthesizer - no patching required
  • 90 modular patch points for endless exploration
  • Expressive 49-note Fatar keyboard w/ patchable velocity and aftertouch
  • 4 analog oscillators w/ selectable waveshape and hard sync per-oscillator
  • Full-range analog LFO with 6 selectable waveshapes
  • Dual analog filters with parallel (HP/LP), stereo (LP/LP), and series (HP/LP) modes available
  • Dual analog ADSR envelopes
  • Dual analog VCAs
  • 3x bipolar voltage controlled attenuators with ring mod capability
  • 2x4 parallel wired unbuffered mults
  • Additional simple analog LFO useful for adding modulation to delay, filters and VCAs.
  • 1/4“ external audio input for processing guitars, drum machines, and more through Matriarch’s analog circuits
  • Stereo ¼” and 3.5mm Eurorack level audio outputs
